Try these simple steps to achieve a naturally healthy lawn:
- Water Correctly – Deep, infrequent watering encourages deep roots that are more tolerant of drought and disease.
- Mow Smart – Do not mow short and be sure to sharpen your mower blades to prevent damaging the grass.
- Build up Your Soil – Use natural fertilizers in the spring and fall, reseed bald patches and top-dress annually with compost.
- Deal with Weeds Sensibly – Hand weed when possible to prevent weeds from going to seed. To eradicate weeds completely try a more organic alternative to synthetic chemicals, like a vinegar-based product or corn gluten.
